PROJECT DESCRIPTION

The global objective of the project is to restore fish migration on the Danube River, focusing on the main migration barrier - the Iron Gates hydropower dams between Romania and Serbia – as part of the legal requirements under the Water Framework Directive. The specific objectives are to test and adapt different telemetry techniques (radio – and acoustic) on sturgeon, in order to achieve the detection resolution required to precisely determine the preferred location of the fish pass entrances at the Iron Gate hydropower and navigation systems. To prepare and train sturgeon tagging and tracking teams from Bulgaria and Serbia, in order for them to become partner in the future larger telemetry study on sturgeon behaviour in relation to the Iron Gate hydropower and navigation systems.
